Latest patch adds a new variant of both Brachydios and Rajang monsters that are deadlier than their original self. Stepping their way into special assignments of Iceborne, these revamped creatures pack some serious punches.

Once you defeat them, you can craft all-new armor sets and weapons from their material remains. Players would require finishing main story of MHW: I first to unlock tundra region of Guiding Lands before engaging these monsters.

Newly introduced layering feature allows Hunters to customize their weapon appearance without having to change its stats. There are several useful charms that are accessible exclusively for owners of Iceborne expansion.

Level cap is raised for master rank armor upgrades in addition of new set of background music and Pendants. Few quality-of-life changes are added and quest leaders can now banish monsters from Guiding Lands using a new item.

Capcom to Announce Two New Games at Jump Festa 2020

Capcom will reportedly reveal two brand-new games at annual anime event Jump Festa 2020 in December.

Year 2019 has been exceptionally well for renowned video game developer/publisher Capcom, launching some of their most successful titles like Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion and Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Of course, they would like to keep that flow going and release more games to keep players engaged. To that, a recent rumor is suggesting that Capcom is planning to reveal two upcoming games at Jump Festa 2020 anime event.

A report on Gematsu quotes Japanese website Ryokutya2089, which claimed that Capcom plans to show four titles at annual Jump Festa 2020 event next month including MHW: Iceborne, Mega Man Zero/ZX and two unreleased games.

However, official source says that they are only going to demonstrate two of above-mentioned games. One of those reveal could very much be Resident Evil 3 Remake that YouTube channel Spawn Wave speculated to drop at The Game Awards 2019.

RELATED: Capcom Profits Doubled Due to Digital Downloads

Both Iceborne expansion and Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection are coming out next year in January. So it really makes sense for Capcom to let players take an early preview at those games and build some hype in advance.

Jump Festa is taking place in a few weeks next month, same as The Game Awards and theory for a reveal of RE3 Remake at the latter only seems reasonable as it is one of the biggest stages for companies to announce their latest AAA-games.

RELATED: Capcom Wants to Revive Old IPs

Also, RE2 Remake has been shortlisted for "Game of the Year" nomination for this year at TGA. It would be an epic moment for all fans to see their favorite classic survivor horror title winning and its sequel getting announced.

Since there is no official confirmation for this rumor, they might stick to regular plan for Jump Festa and prepare for a showcase at The Game Awards 2019, or take stage at their high-profile Capcom Cup 2019 event at the same time.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne X Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Event

For a two-part event quest adventure, HZD protagonist character Aloy will step into icy grounds of "New World" to hunt down terrifying beasts. Being a natural hunter of mech creatures, she will have no trouble fitting in a frigid terrain.

Aside from playing as Aloy, there is a chance for Hunters to craft Light Bowgun, Stormslinger Prototype. This one is a ranged weapon from HZD expansion DLC that nicely fits into MH: World in terms of design aesthetics and usage.

Stormslinger used to be an upgrade for spear that Banuk shaman Ourea wielded in The Frozen Wilds and it now acts more like a ropecaster. Not only its power capacity has been expanded but an overcharge can also cause major blowback.

Similar to fierce canine beast Scorcher from HZD, you have thunderous beast Zinogre to face in Iceborne next month but make sure that you at least have a Master Rank of 24 or above and packing some Thunder Resistance before a confrontation.

Capcom has sold over 4.2 million copies of RE2 Remake by March 2019 and that number has most likely has increased. DMC5 on the other hand, shipped 2.1 million copies and thus, successfully reestablished the series among fans.

Reception for classic remake of Resident Evil 2 was so good at E3 2018 that they expressed interest of doing more remakes even before release. In fact, director Kazunori Kadoi hints at a remake of Resident Evil HD Remaster version.

RELATED: Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

Last year, they released Monster Hunter: World from their popular action role-playing game series that did exceptionally well on PC platform. It largely contributed to overall sales figure and lead to massive expansion titled Iceborne.

Although there are no words on which IP they would love to work on, re-release of Onimusha: Warlords earlier in 2018 clearly indicates that Capcom is definitely open to go far and beyond on their back catalog collection.

Since a large sum of revenue came from digital downloads, some focus will shift to revive more of their legacy collections. Providing extensive support to existing games is also a priority as they helped the company get back on track after long.
